Pikes Peak Ascent and Marathon

When: Aug. 21-22 2010

Going to be in Manitou Springs this afternoon? Watch out for vomit. Pikes Peak Marathon weekend (pikespeakmarathon.org) has arrived, with its two separate races. On Saturday, Ascent runners begin at Memorial Park in Manitou Springs at 7 and 7:30 a.m. and finish at the summit of Pikes Peak (13.32 miles) around 1:30 p.m. No worries there. But at 7 this morning, runners will begin the marathon at Memorial Park, and around the 5 p.m. finish-line closing time, when they return to Ruxton and Manitou avenues, some will literally leave it all on the pavement. — Lea Shores
